We know there has never been a more important time for nature, nor a greater need for the mission of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). Beyond the pandemic, there are two global crises — dramatic biodiversity loss and climate change. These two powerful forces will mark the decade through 2030.
Nature conservation is an integral response to both. Canada has adopted ambitious targets to contribute to global efforts. NCC recognizes that we have an important role to play, for the sake of our communities, our country and our planet.
Our strategic plan takes an eight-year view of our future to steer a course to the end of the decade. The plan is aligned with major global initiatives to protect the planet in the face of rapid biodiversity loss and climate change. In 2030, ambitious national and international conservation targets come due. Canada, as a member of the High Ambition Coalition for People and Nature, has committed to conserving and protecting 30 per cent of its lands and waters by 2030 (30 X 30). The United Nations has launched the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. As both conclude, it will be time to take stock.
NCC's strategic plan supports these targets, inspiring us to re-imagine our work through the bold, game-changing efforts needed to double our impact.
With nature, we build a thriving world.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada will mobilize Canadians to accelerate conservation,
doubling our impact by 2030.
We will deliver $1.5 billion of new conservation outcomes.
We are a community of passionate conservation champions with
a set of shared values that drive us towards our goals.
